FAMH De-watering and Filtration

FAMH Series Vacuum Dehydrator - Water &

Solid Removal

Overview

The FAMH Provides water and solids removal for the conditioning of lubrication and hydraulic fluids. The FAMH is effective in removing water that has been absorbed by the oil (refered to as % saturation). If the amount of water in the system exceeds 100% saturation then it becomes free water, which is visible when allowed to settle. The FAMH will remove the free water and the saturated water at different rates.

Description

The dewatering and filtration unit FAMH is a bypass unit which has been specially designed for the conditioning of lubrication and hydraulic fluids. Use of HYDAC’s Dimicron filter element technology provides a high contamination  retention capacity.The FAMH has been redesigned to include a touch screen menu for ease of diagnostics.

Advantages

Nema 12 Standard Separation of 100% free and 90% dissolved water through vacuum dehydration Removal of 100% of free and 95% of dissolved gases Separation of particles with high contamination retention capacity Easy handling and automatic supervision of the PLC controlled process User friendly touch screen diagnostics Standard aquasensor provides % water saturation JIC connections

Other Advantages

Water removal below saturation point Static flow through the filter Optimal particle removal efficiency Removed water is used to seal the vacuum pump The special vacuum pump concept avoids any dangerous chemical reaction products No corrosion within the vacuum pump No oil mist with standard watering/vacuum pump Serviceable vacuum chamber Low operating costs User friendly on-screen operational and maintenance instructions The contamination of hydraulic fluids with water can either be caused by condensation or by ingression. Variations in temperature of the hydraulic tank lead to condensation. The ingression of water can be caused by defective cooler hoses, defective seals or external leakages into the system.  In lubrication and hydraulic fluids water can occur in two different forms: Free water (visible) Dissolved water (not visible)  Aquamicron® elements, centrifuges and condensation methods normally only separate free water, the FAMH separates both forms of water from the oil. While dewatering the fluid, dissolved gases are also removed. Thereby the lubricating properties are improved which extends oil life, reduces component wear rates, and eliminates production losses caused by breakdowns.

Water Extraction Process

The operating fluid is drawn from the oil reservoir by the vacuum in the reactor through the suction strainer and the shut-off valve. The oil trickles down slowly and from there is fed back into the oil reservoir by the gear pump through the filter. When Dimicron filter element technology is used the unit is especially economical. Water is removed from the fluid in the reactor. The vacuum present has the effect of reducing the boiling point of the water. The water vapor is released into the atmosphere or the water reservoir through the vacuum pump.

Dimicron® Filter Element

The synthetic membrane provides a high filtration rating while the cellulose filter layer collects and holds the bulk of the dirt load. This combination results in excellent removal efficiency, even in a single pass, and extremely high dirt holding capacity.
